Mayhem # 801
I took my first class in 1983, and haven't set the camera down since. I have been doing fetish and erotic imagery for the last twenty years.
I do still shoot B&W film for my personal portfolio, but complement that with digital photography, so, don't be surprised. I also do this as a hobby and work with people who are also looking to add creative images to their portfolio. If a paying project ever comes my way, I'll be more than happy to spread the wealth, but I generally shoot TFP/TFCD.
I also do not do a lot of retouching. I know how to (I've been using PS since 2.0), I just think that people need to look like people, not plastic. Your scar/mole/etc makes you who you are. I am a photographer, not a graphic designer. If you are modeling an a regular basis ,then you are beautiful as you are. I feel that most of what an image captures comes from inside the model anyways. Having a bad day, I'll retouch that blemish. Just don't expect Playboy style retouching.
While I have shot adult work, you will notice most of my work isn't explicit. I like to leave something to the imagination. I love the work Jeanloup Sieff and Dahmane have done, and I feel the my work reflects theirs, but with my own twist.
I do allow chaperones, as long as they do not interfere with the shoot. I will most likely have my girlfriend with me, as well.
I have a self published book,
"A Decade Exposed", which is available for purchase. 114 pages covering the first real decade of my work. To purchase, go here: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/303697
Currently, I am free weekends to shoot. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in working together. I am also available for video work, both shooting and editing in 1080i. I am also currently moving my erotic work to it's own website which will go live soon.
